Anybody... still playing MAG?

Hows the online community holding up for this game?  I was thinking of getting it while it's on sale... but are there still enough people playing it to get into 256 player games or what?

There's still plenty of people playing, I've had no problems finding matches

I am. Finding games can take a few min but you will find them.  
 
MAG is one of the most well supported games I have ever seen. Its crazy!  
Next week they are releasing a new BETA client so they can test out all the crazy new shit they are making for the game.

Edit: what faction are you going to choose.

I still pop it in from time to time and lose myself for a week or so. I'm strongly contemplating buying the new DLC pack and giving it another go.

I sold it yesterday. Everytime I played, there was about 2,000-3,000 people playing at once.@CenturionCajun: Last time I checked, under 100 people were on the DLC at all times.

I might load it up again, My PS3 crashed a few months ago and ate my RDR disk, I Might have to get back to playing this. It's a good game

I have a hard time finding that game enjoyable ever since I played Bad Company 2.  If I could find a way to make the aiming fell more like BC2, I might try to play sometimes.

Yup. I set MAG aside for a while, but I've come back to it in a big way. With a new beta launching this week, new features in the pipeline, Move support incoming, and a strong player base, it's a good time to be playing MAG.

I just re-purchased the game today.  Excited to see if it's changed much since launch.

i did the same and after i reach level 60 with my valor character, i may set it aside for a while again (reach and fallout: new vegas will be occupying my time).  i will however, after a month or two, be sure to pick it back up again.
